Bear – the German Shepherd

I was commissioned to create this painting of Bear, the German Shepherd who can’t keep out of the water. I’m on a roll with German Shepherds so once again, I focused on the eyes. She has such a gentle expression.

Alan was very pleased with the result and will be meeting his daughter shortly, who owns the lovely Bear, to pass on the portrait. I can’t wait to hear her reaction. Commissioning a dog portrait for a present is such a great idea.

Otto Portrait

I loved painting one of my favourite dogs, Otto.
His eyes are so expressive and once I had those right, it was easy.
Painted for Otto’s owner, David for his birthday.
